Occupying the third-largest market share after Netflix and Amazon in Japan, it distinguishes itself as the biggest domestic representative. Entertaining its subscribers with an extensive product line-up unmatched by any of its competitors, U-NEXT offers a variety of Japan-focused content like drama series from Japan and other Asian countries that cannot be found anywhere else.

U-NEXT's business is focused heavily on technology: Their goal is to hire the best people to build their product (regardless of nationality), and they have managed to assemble a world-class engineering team in their Tokyo office. Their CEO himself has stated that "understanding and investing in technology" is of the utmost importance to the company. U-NEXT's leadership and members are highly diverse, with members from many different countries practicing agile development and maintaining a culture inspired by Silicon Valley tech companies.

U-NEXT's work style is also among the most flexible and progressive for Japanese tech companies. In addition to full flex time (no core hours) and remote work (even before COVID-19), they provide several great benefits designed to keep their employees as happy as possible.
